The Nutrition Services program is an integral part of the health and wellness education and patient services program offered at the Student Health Center (SHC).
With so many options, students are often confused about how to eat right. We want to help our students navigate food choices on and off campus. The SHC Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist, Katherine McCune, has a Bachelor's of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics and a Master's degree in Educational Psychology and Counseling with skills and knowledge to translate nutritional science into practical information. Our dietitian designs healthy individual meal plans which includes a personal food/nutrition history and determination of a healthy weight. She also provides special recommendations, meal plans, and recipes for those who follow a vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, paleo, food allergy, sensitive digestive system, and other special diets. Katherine is also part of the Eating Disorder Team that provides recommendations for disordered eating.
Nutrition Services is a big part of our campus outreach. Our staff organizes nutrition education programs for specialized groups including: residential halls, convocations, health and wellness fairs, professor requested presentations, and food committee participation.
Katherine is available Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Student Health Center. Call (310) 506-4316 Option 3 to schedule an appointment. Read more about Katherine here.
